Carl Hart is the Dirk Ziff Professor of Psychology in the departments of Psychology and Psychiatry at Columbia University. He is also the Chair of the Department of Psychology.
I am committed to the people who are sick and tired of seeing their tax dollars being used to fund unethical people and corporations, which ultimately perpetuates social inequality and does not lead to effective drug policy. A key element of my approach is the use of empirical evidence to guide public policy, even if it makes us uncomfortable. If we do this, we could have more humane and effective criminal justice policy, and a healthier and more productive society overall. This website was created to ensure that the global public has 24-hour access to some of the best scientific information related to drugs.
You have my word that I will continue to fight for justice.
